Use wool dryer balls instead of expensive dryer sheets.

1 Lifehacks For Home (11 pics)

Wool balls are meant for the dryer to make the laundry fluffier and softer. They are reusable, and they can endure up to 1,000 loads, which makes them a much better deal than store-bought dryer sheets. There are no toxic chemicals and scents if you’re allergic or sensitive to those, but you can add your favorite essential oil if you feel like adding a fragrance to your laundry.

Zip up your hoodies.

Zip up your hoodies before you put them in the dryer in order for the zippers to not get wavy. What’s more, don’t use high temperatures while drying because this can cause the fabric to shrink, and the zippers will get wavy.

If your shower stream seems to be weaker than before, you might have hard water: in this case, the minerals are jamming your shower head and nozzle. Use a toothbrush soaked in white vinegar to scrub the water jets. After that, wipe it and turn on the jets to maximum to get out the clogging minerals.

Some sneakers can’t be washed in the washing machine: it’s true for Converse, and it’s a good idea to check the care instructions for yours. If that’s the case, getting rid of stains might be a challenge, but dipping a soft brush in hydrogen peroxide and scrubbing should help. And if you have leather shoes, baking soda will come in handy.

If you’re cleaning broken glass from the floor, it’s a good idea to dim the lights and hold a flashlight parallel to the floor: it’ll make visible the small shards you may have missed.

Shake out towels before putting them in the dryer.

Shake out your towels after you wash them. If you do this, they’ll dry better and be fluffier because this way the terry loops are fluffed (this also helps with absorbency). Also, don’t iron terry towels, this makes them absorb liquids worse.

Regularly check for mold in the areas you normally don’t go.

Make sure you check for mold in those areas in your house that you don’t go to regularly because it can grow just off humidity in the air and on almost any surface. If you spotted some, don’t try to clean it up the way you’d deal with dust: mold will come back very quickly.
